Paul Millsap has been diagnosed with a left wrist ligament injury and he's currently mulling over his options to determine the best course of treatment.
Both Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Tuesday that Millsap was set to undergo surgery and expected to miss 2-3 months, but it looks like surgical intervention hasn't officially been decided upon just yet. We'd advise on holding onto him until we have an official timetable and treatment option, but in the meantime, Kenneth Faried should be starting at the four with additional minutes falling to Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles. Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic should all see an uptick in usage as well. Nov 22 - 11:32 AM

Paul Millsap will reportedly undergo left wrist surgery and he will be out indefinitely.

Not good. While X-rays came back negative, tests taken over the past few days confirmed the need for surgery and Shams Charania reports he could be looking at a 2-3 month absence. Kenneth Faried got the start in his place on Monday night but finished with just six points and seven boards in 19 minutes, so he's still not a very attractive add. The Nuggets could also go small sans Millsap, shifting Wilson Chandler over to the four and starting Will Barton at the three, in which case Barton would see a nice uptick in value. Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Barton figure to pick up most of Millsap's usage, and Juan Hernangomez could become a larger part of the rotation. Millsap will be tough to hang onto if you don't have an IR-spot.

X-rays taken on Paul Millsap's left wrist came back negative, but he will not play Monday vs. Sacramento.

It's nice to know that Millsap didn't break anything, but depending on the severity of the sprain, he could be looking at more than just a one-game absence here. Kenneth Faried or Will Barton could move into the starting five tonight with Millsap out, and there will be more opportunity on offense for guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.

Paul Millsap (left wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game in Sacramento.

Millsap sprained his wrist on Sunday night, and while X-rays came back negative, it won't be all that surprising if he's forced to spend at least a few games on the sidelines. Nuggets reporter Harrison Wind speculates that Kenneth Faried could be Millsap's replacement tonight, and if that's the case, he could be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. We can also expect guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic, Will Barton and Jamal Murray to all see an uptick in usage sans Millsap.

Paul Millsap (left wrist) had X-rays taken after leaving Sunday's game in the first half, but the results aren't yet known.

Millsap didn't play after halftime on Sunday, but Denver was trailing by more than 20 points so hopefully this isn't a long-term issue. The X-rays results should be disclosed soon. If Millsap does miss time, Trey Lyles should gain the most, with guys like Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee also picking up the slack.
Nov 20 - 12:14 AM

Paul Millsap exited Sunday's game with a left wrist sprain, finishing with five points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes.

Millsap headed into the locker room and emerged with his wrist taped in the first half, but Will Barton replaced him in the starting lineup after halftime. This could be a simple precaution, especially since Nikola Jokic was ejected early and Denver trailed by 22 points at halftime, but we'll consider Millsap questionable for Monday's road game in Sacramento.
Nov 19 - 11:28 PM

Paul Millsap scored 20 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, two steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

October was not fun, but Millsap is having himself quite a month in November. In his last eight games, he averaged 17.6 points, 5.0 boards, 4.1 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 treys. His Atlanta offense and this Denver offense are night and day, but now he seems to have it figured out. If you bought low on Halloween, you're in for a treat.
Nov 18 - 1:40 AM

Paul Millsap hit 6-of-16 shots and a season-high five 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 34 minutes of Monday's 99-82 loss to the Blazers.

Millsap has been a bit disappointing this season, but has been Mr. Consistency in his last four games, scoring 17, 17, 16 and 18 points while averaging 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 2.8 blocks and 1.5 3-pointers in that span, shooting 44 percent. Millsap appears to be coming on and the fact he knocked down five triples is icing on the cake. Hopefully his slow start will be a distant memory in a couple weeks.
Nov 14 - 1:09 AM

Paul Millsap scored 17 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and six blocks in 40 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

He's back to being the Millsap we saw a couple years ago. The Nuggets played him at center in this game and he's really been racking up the stats lately. Over the last five, Millsap averaged 17.4 points, 4.2 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.8 blocks, 1.8 steals and 1.0 treys. That buy-low window is just about closed.
Nov 10 - 1:54 AM

Paul Millsap scored six points with one assist, one steal, four turnovers and no rebounds in 16 minutes during a blowout loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

Maybe the back-to-back was a factor, but Millsap was a step slow for basically the entire game. He was coming in red hot and going up against Draymond Green can lead to some bad lines, so Millsap's owners shouldn't worry here.
Nov 5 - 12:02 AM

Paul Millsap scored a season-high 27 points during a 95-94 win over the Heat on Fridays doing nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

With the Nuggets down two and 11 seconds left, James Johnson fouled Paul Millsap on a 3-point attempt. Millsap had choked at the line earlier this year, but he hit all three to give the Nuggets the lead for good to get them over .500. After a really tough start in a new system, Millsap is starting to look like that first-round fantasy guy we saw two seasons ago. That buy-low window is closing mighty fast.
Nov 4 - 2:24 AM

Paul Millsap scored a season-high 20 points with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He did almost of his damage in the first half with 19 points in 16 minutes, but the Nuggets had this game in the bag in the third quarter. Millsap is starting to turn the corner on the stat sheet with improvements in rebounding and defensive stats, so maybe the offense will heat up. There's still a chance to buy low on Millsap because the Nuggets offense still hasn't hit on all cylinders before tonight.
Nov 2 - 2:08 AM

Paul Millsap shot 5-of-14 from the field on Sunday, but he chipped elsewhere with 13 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and zero turnovers in 38 minutes.

The Nuggets' offense has been stuck in mud but they broke out against a hapless Nets' defense tonight, including a 31-6 run coming out of halftime. We've yet to see the Millsap fantasy owners know and love (he has two steals through six games, for instance), but it's coming.
Oct 29 - 9:25 PM

Paul Millsap scored 16 points with six rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one turnover in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

While he got a win, this didn't fit the recent theme of revenge games in the past two days. Like most of the Nuggets, Millsap is not living up to expectations so far, averaging 15.6 points, 6.8 boards, 0.8 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.8 treys. The lack of dimes has to be the most surprising based on how coach Mike Malone said he'd run some offense through him. Millsap can be viewed as a buy-low target and hasn't even been a top-150 player so far.
Oct 27 - 11:43 PM

Paul Millsap's rough start to 2017-18 continued on Wednesday with eight points and five rebounds in 28 minutes of action.

Prior to this game, Millsap's owners couldn't complain about his usage (26.5 percent) or efficiency (51.2 percent FGs), but he continues to offer very little elsewhere. During the Nuggets' 1-3 start this year, he's contributing 1.0 threes, 7.0 boards, 0.7 assists and 0.3 blocks, without a single steal. Millsap is routinely among the leaders in steals, of course, and this is a buy-low opportunity in the making.
